Made It

I made it to Eon Ranch. This should allow me to some new people. Get to know a lot of people. The one thing that is goood about life is the willingness to accept outside one’s comfort zone and meet new people.

I still go to call two sober people though. I got to become at taking directions and calling alcoholics.

Out!

Islamic Nutcases

Wile there is not many members of Al’Queida left, we still a lot of nutballs out there. From Jawa Report,

“After this week’s shootout between FBI agents and a Detroit imam, police had to enter the mosque with guns drawn to look for one of the imam’s disciples who was captured on video assaulting a Detroit News photographer. Because Islam is a Religion of Peace after all.
Yes, the imam who was killed, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, refused to surrender to police (because Muslims don’t have to follow infidel laws) and engaged in a shootout with the FBI that killed a canine agent, and also openly preached about the violent establishment of an Islamic state in America, but don’t forget that he was a humanitarian. Islamophobe”

I know this blogger has an resentment up his ass, but still it shows that we have monitor some of the nutballs before they do something that kills somebody.

Stupid Drug Sentence

For this amount of drugs, 18 years is excesive

“Chesterfield Co. drug busts land Charlotte man in prisonPosted: Friday, October 30, 2009 3:19 PM EST Updated: Friday, October 30, 2009 3:19 PM EST
COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – A 27-year-old Charlotte drug dealer was sentenced Friday to 18 years in jail after a 2007 arrest for selling 150 grams of cocaine and having another 600 grams.
U.S. District Judge Terry L. Wooten sentenced Cavedric McNair to 216 months for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Investigators said McNair, Deandra Maurice Adams, 25, also from Charlotte, and Douglas McKendrie Mays IV, 28, of Cassatt, SC, were part of a group responsible for the distribution of multiple kilograms of cocaine in both North and South Carolina since 2000.
In 2007, confidential informants working for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division made controlled purchases of cocaine from McNair and Mays. In October 2007, during a buy-bust undercover operation, McNair and Adams were arrested in possession of more than150 grams of cocaine. That same day the FBI executed a search warrant at McNair’s Charlotte residence, and found 600 grams of cocaine, along with the packaging for 28 kilograms of cocaine. Over $4,000 in cash and scales for weighing the cocaine were also found in McNair’s residence.
Co-defendants, Adams and Mays, were previously sentenced by Judge Wooten to 90 and 38 months respectively.
The case was investigated by the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office, SLED, and the FBI.”

18 years for that? This sentence is another example of the insanity of the drug war.

NYT: Goldman Sachs Get Huge Profits Off My Hard-Earned Tax Dollars

The New York Times today reports that Goldman Sachs earned $3.19 billion dollars this last quarter.  The reality is that Goldman Sachs got wealthy on our hard-earned tax money.  And personally, I resent Goldman Sachs a lot but not like the guy who melted down in the following two Youtube clips.

Oh, here is the link to the report discussed by the professor in the video.  The referenced report discusses how to properly invest resources in the subprime mortage crises.    Therefore, the report shows that Goldman had knowledge that crises was going to be good.

In reality, Goldman Sachs made its profit from the America’s system of corporate socialism.  Goldman made all of the smart moves and therefore, reaped a huge profit. 

In the banking fiasco, the winner was the corporation that had the most connection in government.  Max Kessel points out that Goldman Sachs had several government officials on its payroll.

The real blame for this mess should not be on Goldman Sach’s, but on the government officials that used their office to enrich the former corporations.  This is a classic example of the revolving door and why I think America is a socialist state.  American is not a democratic socialist state, but a corporate socialist state.

Prison Crises

Talking to the outside world on the issue of prison reform and working with prisoners is like talking a wall.  People just do not care or want to lock away and throw away the key.

 

I was talking to a friend tonight about the California prison crises.  His solution was “let’s move them to desert in the middle of Nevada”. 

 

He doesn’t get it.  That does not solve the problem  The only way this problem gets solve if we all care about it.

 

People are on the outside and are callous.  And the legislature is just as bad.  Talking to Legislature like to talking to the wall.

 

And reforming the prison problem is not just about changing sentence laws.  It is about changing cultural and social condition.  The type of reform that requires sacrifice.

 It means giving back people to the tools to empower their lives back. The solution means teaching people a spiritual path to live. That community rise up and drive out the gangsters.  It mean standing up to the corporations and  not allowing corporate culture to infilatrate the street.

Changing the sentence laws is just a bandaid.  It means changing life and people.

And I am not capable and powerless.  All I can do is change individual lives one at time.
